Only if you're using results under that management to assess the squad's quality, which is my entire point (across the entire rest of that post). It's like saying our current squad isn't top 4 worthy because we're 8th right now.Clearly not!
Going to say this again: we finished 28 points ahead of Liverpool, 26 ahead of Everton, 17 ahead of Spurs and 16 ahead of Arsenal in 2013. We finished behind them all the next season with point swings of 48, 34, 22 and 31 respectively. You're having a laugh if you think it was just Fergie propping us up over all of them by that magnitude.
